'The King's Speech' | 2010
The historical drama stars Colin Firth as King George VI and Geoffrey Rush as the speech therapist who helped give the king a voice. The film opens with the reluctant monarch stammering through a 1925 speech at an exhibition and closes in 1939 with the king's famed radio broadcast declaring war against Nazi Germany.
The film was the star of the 2011 Academy Awards, winning four of its 12 Oscar nominations: best picture, director, actor (Firth) and original screenplay.
